Happy Adoption Day

Boo, Dimples, and Ladybug

Today is Dimple’s adoption day! One year ago today we learned that we had finally passed court and she was officially our daughter. I remember the tremendous relief we felt! Here are some photos taken today of our three youngest daughters wearing dress-ups and dancing to Strauss waltzes.

Thanks for sharing our happiness today.

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.
